Here’s the release notes: Metacity is a lightweight compositing window manager for the GNOME desktop. What’s […]

Branch for stable 2.24

Metacity has been branched for stable 2.24.  Hacking will continue in trunk as 2.25.x.  This doesn’t mean that what’s in the 2.24 branch will necessarily be exactly what will ship; it does mean that what’s in the 2.24 branch is considered stable and changes which affect stability won’t affect it. New features in trunk will […]
